Our wedding that took place on Saturday 6 November 2021 in the Brighton Hilton Metropole hotel. This was the well rehearsed, dragged out, debut stand-up comedy set that was to be called the Groom’s speech. Such a show-off!

11 December 2020
Jezz and I met in 2000 and this year, despite the horrors of lockdowns with COVID-19, it seemed appropriate to celebrate that we’ve spent 20 years getting to know one another. This video shows just some selfies taken across the years, mainly while we were out and about.

Here is the video which shows a selection of photos of Irene Evans, Debbie’s Nanny and Kelly’s Great Nanny. She lived to an amazing age of 101 years and died in December 2019. The backing soundtrack is my beautiful daughter with an equally beautiful voice. This is her version of ‘Amazing Grace.’

Coupled with the Father of the Bride speech, I thought it would be a good idea to collect video tributes from everyone that knows and loves them. From my friends that have met Kelly to loved ones as far as New Zealand and Australia, this compilation of tributes was played to them at the reception. Music featured is Theme: A Summer Place by Percy Faith and his Orchestra and Power To Believe by Dream Academy.

2 March 2019
Knowing that I was not going to be at my daughter’s wedding, I decided to arrange with Debbie (her Mum) that I would pay tribute by video and created this Father of the Bride speech. With the love of my hero Kenny Everett, I made a brave attempt to be witty and zany about it.

22 September 2018
A collection of photos to the backing track of one of David’s favourites songs of all time, Over The Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.
